Thread: JAY-Z and DEF JAM.....not that great so far...

  1. #1

    Default JAY-Z and DEF JAM.....not that great so far...

    Yo, when I first heard that Jay-Z was going to be in charge of DEF JAM.....I thought they would start putting out good albums again. However, since Jigga has been boss he has released wack ass albums by MEMPHIS BLEEK, and YOUNG GUNS (the dudes in the puppie video a couple years back)...........now I hear the next DEF JAM release is FOXY BROWN???.......does anone give a shit about FOXY BROWN???

    .....seems like he is more concerned with putting out albums from his friends than actually signing and releasing albums by talented artists............like he can put out another fuckin MEMPHIS BLEEK album and we still cannot get ODB or MOP's new album out????

    Okay bro......as far as YOUNG GUNZ having skills.....are they not the same dudes cuddeling up to puppies in that wack ass video a couple years back? (to hbe honest I never gave them a listen after seeing that gay shit).......and MEMPHIS BLEEK, the dude who has released the same mediocre album 4 times in a row

    .....all I am saying is that, why not release albums by ODB, MOP, REDMAN, etc........all these albums have been put on hold.......but instead the focus is on releasing some 3rd string rappers who aint that great.....

    I sort of understand what ur sayin at the begginin of that, but ur still bein close-minded about 'em....

    BUT.. ODB's album is no longer under Jay's control.. that's Dame's area... M.O.P. are no longer on DJ or the ROC.. they are on Gay-Unit... and.... I dunno shit about Redman.. I know he's been workin on those Gillahouse FAm Mixtapes er whatevers tho.

    Am having a hard time tryin to figure the connection between heaving skills and cuddeling puppy's in vids, I mean do you have more skills if your shooting somebody. And how do you know about their skills if you never listening to them? Geezzzz..

    MOP didn't wanna mess with Jay & Red album coming out later this year. Jay not releasing Memph is like 50 not singing on his records, impossible, but I agree that Memph's album was garbage. As of now, am lost all faith in dude, all of it. YG's ain't that bad tho, if you can listen to them without prejugdments you mind find yourself diggin them.. a bit. Am not a fan of them niggaz, but I do find their music to be enjoyable from time to time/

    As far as The Carter Administration, give him at least a year or so. Kanye is gonna doing sum serious damage that's for certian. But I do believe that Jay needs to do more on his marketing managment, he may put his faith in Ghost, put if the marketing machine fails the product, then you know its chart longetivity gonna sink faster than the titanic.

    Look......Bleek, Young Gunz, blah blah blah they are all GOOD rappers.....but i mean compare them to Immortal Technique, or Rakim, or Gza, or Ghostface, or Nas, etc....they SUCK ASS. So thats why everyone is like "they suck" why waste your time listening to whack ass rappers when you got so many other better ones.

    Guys, don't forget it takes years to make an album sometimes. How many years has Jay-Z been Prez? 1? not even? Chill give the man some time. He goin to do his thing there.

    dude, you sound like a douchebag.....but I will answer some of the stuff you said

    ...the ODB album has been done for months and has been sitting on the shelf

    ....REDMAN has been fighting with DEF JAM to put out a record for over a year

    ......YOUNG GUNZ rap about there "gangsta", next moment they are in a video cuddeling up to puppies and lookin cute!....THIS IS THE SORT OF SHIT THAT IS KILLING HIP HOP!!! DUDES TRYING TO ACT GANGSTA THEN ARE ON THE BUBBLEGUM SHIT!

    ....so what MEMOPH BLEEK put out an album alittle better than the very mediocre albums he dropped before.....who cares

    I dont think I was being ignorant, in stating what I said in this thread cause it is all the truth
